    Thank you for the info. I'll use it and hope not to get that stupid idiot mark this time around on my new gun.

    That works as well as a jeweler's screw driver.
    However,......I prefer the notch in the slide stop.

    I used a small flat screwdriver for a long time and have used the card trick a few times.. Now I always have the notch aadded on the first trip to the pistol smith. It's an easy fix and has surely saved me a refinish job or two.. Ron

    PS: I have been accused of using the idiot scratch as an excuse to correct the sorry blasted finish on my Springfields.. LOL

    The notch in the slide stop is handy. (I'm glad Alex built mine with that!)

    It's something that makes you go, "Oh. Now why didn't they do that back in the '20s?" :smilie:

    I think sometime soon I'll make a disassembly video for YouTube, just to join the herd with such things.

    A thin Guitar Pick also works pretty well.

    I've read about that mod in the past, just haven't had any time to address it yet, but is on my list of things to do. Can I ask this, in this post by logman http://forums.1911forum.com/showpost.php?p=2394056&postcount=58 he mentions that late in 09'. I have a NH built Dec 09' but never paid any attention to see if in fact had been done to my slide stop. Anybody else here that noticed NH does this to their slide stops? I can check also the next time I field strip but wondered if anybody has noticed this already done with their pistols? Additionally, if I didn't want to take this on myself due to a left hand that is kinda malfunctioning, do I need to send the whole pistol in? I'm assuming yes..

    There's no need to field strip to check if it's been done to your slide stop.

    Simply lock the slide back without a magazine in the gun. You'll be able to see the slide stop from there, looking through the ejection port. If you see a little notch cut out in its after side, then it's been so modified. :thumb:

    Thanks Andy! I'll check her out. If I wish to have this done do I need to send the whole pistol off?

    Why would you need to send the pistol in for this? You can buy a SS from 10-8 that has a bevel on it for the same reason.

    In that case, I may even give it a shot myself. If I somehow screw it up I can just purchase another I guess. Thanks for the info.
